Post Malone, Tyler the Creator, Miley Cyrus and The Foo Fighters will be among the headliners when Lollapalooza returns to Grant Park for its 30th anniversary July 29-August 1. The festival returns at full capacity after a year away due to the still-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees at this year’s festival must be fully vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test obtained within 24 hours of each festival day.
Other returning acts include Illenium, Marshmello and Dababy. Roddy Ricch, who had a major 2020 despite the pandemic (thanks in no small part to TikTok) is a notable performer set to please the crowds who missed out on seeing him live last year. Three-time Grammy winner Megan Thee Stallion makes her Lolla debut this year after exploding into the mainstream with hits like “Savage” and “WAP.” Her appearance is much-welcomed after a lack of female headliners in years past.
Ten years after they played a now-classic rainy set at the festival, perennial rockers The Foo Fighters return to the Lolla stage. Much beloved, their unsurprising appearance is another reminder of the middling state of mainstream rock ’n’ roll. Whereas the festival’s pop, hip hop and electronic headliners continue to represent a crop of performers hand picked off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the rock acts often fall into the throwback vein.
According to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office, additional details on the festival and its entry process will be released in early July. The festival announced more than 165 bands and artists Wednesday. Four-day passes begin at $350 and go on sale at Lollapalooza.com at noon Wednesday, while one-day tickets have not yet been announced or on sale. Typically, Lollapalooza waits until four-day passes are sold out to announce the day-by-day lineup and put single-day tickets on sale.
